Currently I have: *PC desktop -All my music files (~120GB) -iTunes manages my music and podcasts -Sync my ipod (music) and iphone (podcasts) to it *Macbook Pro -Movie files ripped with Handbrake for portable use -Share music to the MBP using iTunes Home Sharing What I want: -To be able to access my music and movies from either computer in the house -To be able to play those music/movies on the Living Room TV/Stereo (Thinking of a new Apple TV) -Have playcounts/ratings update no matter where the file is played -Create playlists and sync my iPod and iPhone to at least the Macbook Pro if not either computer -Still take a few movies with on the MBP? (Assuming a don't get an iPad.... ) My desktop isn't going away (and obviously neither is my MBP) as I use them for different purposes. I don't want to load up all my media on the laptop as that would consume a massive chunk of hard drive space, and I'd still like to access that content on the desktop. Right now, Home Sharing isn't updating playcounts (which I'd like) and additionally, I'd like to get a new Apple TV to send media to my TV and Stereo. What is the best way to accomplish this? If I keep the entire library on a NAS, can either computer access it and update playcounts? Will I be able to access it wirelessly over the network and "send/stream" the content to the Apple TV? I'd like to see how you guys are managing a decent sized music/movie library with a mac/pc setup and how its working out for you, as well as how this impacts the ability to modify/add content on the road and sync it back to the home network/itunes library.
